Still Waiting For The Most Overhyped Storm In History

"Baseball-sized hail and tornadoes were promised and all we got was some weird clouds, rain and pebble-sized hail. BIG DEAL! Brant Miller and Tom Skilling Lied To Me."


The dude bought the last generator at Lowe's, for godsake.


"Although the National Weather Service logged reports of a funnel cloud in Will County and a possible tornado touchdown west of Chicago, most of the metropolitan area was spared from severe storms," WLS-AM reports.

(And 6,800 ComEd customers without electricity? That's just another day in Chicago.)

"The Chicago area didn't get hit because the cool air off Lake Michigan weakened the hot moist air that fuels thunderstorms," said National Weather Service meteorologist Ben Deubelbeiss.

"Closer to Chicago, nickel-size hail was reported in Schaumburg and Hoffman Estates."

Nickels. In Schaumburg. Reportedly.


And was this really necessary?


Comments welcome.
